Giving to the future
Students from South Hills School of Business and Technology’s Criminal Justice (CJ) program and members of the C.O.P.S. Club recently held a fundraiser to benefit Family Services Inc.’s efforts in getting a new building for their homeless shelter in Altoona. The students recently presented Lisa Hann, Director of Family Services Inc., with a donation for $250. Over the past four years, the shelter has housed over 800 individuals. The current shelter offers 16 beds and they are looking to double the size with a 35-unit building and six apartments. The goal of the new location will remain the same as it always has been — to assist residents in getting back to a place in society where they will be productive.
